McCarthy Building Companies, Inc., a Texas builder for nearly 40 years and one of the state’s preeminent contractors, announced today that Ray Sedey has assumed the position of president of McCarthy’s Texas region. Sedey moved into this new role Sept. 1, 2015 for a transition period with Michael McWay, the company’s former president for the Texas region. McWay began serving as regional president in 2001 and retired Dec. 31, 2015.

Prior to assuming his current position, Sedey served as executive vice president, overseeing company operations in Nevada, New Mexico and Colorado. He started his career with McCarthy as a project engineer in 2000 and moved up in the company to serve in all aspects of project management including project superintendent, manager, director, executive and vice president. Throughout the course of his career with McCarthy, Sedey has managed nearly $700 million in construction projects. He was instrumental in evolving McCarthy’s market presence in Nevada, New Mexico, and recently spearheaded the opening of McCarthy’s newest office in Denver. During his tenure, the firm was repeatedly named a top Las Vegas “Best Place to Work.”

“Under Mike McWay’s leadership, McCarthy built an impressive portfolio of projects for Texas clients, expanded service lines and opened a full-service office in Houston,” explained McCarthy Chairman and CEO Michael Bolen. “Now with Ray at the helm, we will continue to further strengthen owner and industry relationships and deliver on our uncompromising commitment to our clients.”

In addition to Sedey’s experience with McCarthy, he has been actively involved in a variety of professional organizations throughout his career including serving on the Associated General Contractors of Nevada Board of Directors, executive committee and government affairs committee; University of Nevada Las Vegas (UNLV) Construction Management Advisory Board; Montana State University Construction Management Advisory Board and Civil Engineering Advisory Board; and the American Concrete Institute. He has been repeatedly recognized for his leadership and innovative approach, receiving an Engineering News-Record Southwest 20 Under 40 Award, among others. Sedey holds a bachelor of science in Construction Engineering from Montana State University.

“I am honored to have been chosen to lead the Texas region and continue to provide outstanding service for clients in the state,” commented Sedey. “I believe my time with McCarthy coupled with a talented team in Texas will make for a smooth transition. I’m ready to carry on the legacy and improve upon the excellent reputation our Texas team has built in the region.”
